As of January 2020, Jessica Leffers, 4th year PhD student in the CORE Lab, is spending a few months in Ireland collecting data and working in Dr. Aidan Feeney’s lab at Queen’s University Belfast. Dr. Feeney is a frequent collaborator of the CORE Lab and together, Jessica and Dr. Feeney are comparing how people conceptualize race and religion; they are also investigating how people think about the self. Jessica is also making time to embrace the Irish spirit!
